Galaxy Snood - Free Pattern
Hello all my peoples!
Below is my first pattern for my cosmic pattern collection. I created a snood that can be pulled up for a cozy hooded scarf or a nice big cowl. If you prefer a pdf with checkboxes, please check out my Etsy or Ravelry shop to purchase the premium, tech edited pdf.

This is an intermediate crochet pattern. You can check out my youtube for the stitch tutorials for each of the stitches in this pattern. I think that a beginner with knowledge of the basic crochet stitches can absolutely make this snood.
I made this using four skeins of Landscapes in Volcano from Lionbrand. It is 100% acrylic, weight 4, and is self striping. The colors include pink, black, purple, orange and red. The colorway reminded me of the colors that are often seen in galaxy pictures. I also used one skein of Metallico in Silver Sapphire from Hobbii for the ring detailing. I used a 5mm hook to get to a length of 20.50 inches and a circumference of 30.25 inches. My gauge for this piece is 15 Sts and 10 rows = 4"x4" in HBdc.
